    Hello,

    I just wonder if it matters when I shorten an URL while doing SEO. For example, if I write a blog comment with a backlink to a site using a shortened link. Just imagine if bit.ly or goo.gl shut down your account for some reason and the URL isn't valid anymore. That can go so quick!

    So, how is the situation?

    Yes, it is okay and it still passes juice. Don't worry.

    Yes, you can build links to shortened url, it will surely pass the link juice. I don't think they will get down your shortened url for no reason.
